^ My biggest concern with that (aside from the fact that the original aired almost 30 years ago) is that Alan Young will be like 3-4 years shy of a full hundo when they start producing this. I'm doubtful he'll be up to voicing a full-on series. Hopefully, the (likely) new voice actor will be faithful to Young's interpretation.
I'm not holding out any hope for the reboot in general, but hopefully, I'll be pleasantly surprised.

If Disney is good at one thing, it's finding voice actors to always keep their characters sounding the same. I'm sure the same will apply here.

That is true. Time will tell, of course.

I must be the only one glad that tri-Ace is done. I hated most of their games that I played except for Radiata Stories.

Why would you be glad? It's not like have to play their games even if you don't want to.

My problem with the screens isn't that the graphics look "objectively" bad or anything, it's that it lacks style. Final Fantasy Tactics and Tactics Ogre both have technically unimpressive visuals but are nevertheless really nice to look at. FFXII was impressive in both regards but that would be an unfair comparison. This can get fixed by appropriate lighting and whatnot though, which is why it's hard to really pass judgment on early screenshots like these.

My thoughts exactly. It's still quite early I guess but this looks incredibly amateurish and nothing like the preview artwork. The artwork, if memory serves, was very much in that Vagrant Story/FF Tactics vein. Very gritty medieval realism. These screens couldn't look further if they tried. And what happened to the hexagonal grid? That was this game right?

I can understand if someone playing SO2 now is not impressed by back at the time of release on PS1 it was amazing. Yet it still got mediocre reviews. The graphics are simple compared to FF9 but the pre rendered backgrounds look amazing. The music is top 5 all time for me. Like FF7 I can still hear the music in my head and get warm feelings. Gameplay is nothing amazing but neither was the FF games of the era. Besides I don't play JRPGs for combat. Only really good combat is in the SMT games. Story was interesting and I liked the characters. I played as Rena and I liked her. I really love that game.

So ended up getting. The game is decent, but oh lord is it grindy. If you want to get skills, you also have to grind Parallel Quests like there is no tomorrow. If you want any full armor sets you have to grind Parallel Quests even more. I spent a good amount of time yesterday grinding the Raditz Parallel quest because the strike finisher was refusing to drop. Ended up only getting a single piece of the armor set that can drop from that mission. Luckily that one can be bought, but I think that most armor sets cannot be bought.

I'm building my char as a physical brawler and plan on maxing out basic attacks, health, and stamina. Only skill I will ever use is the Kaioken as I am a human meaning bonus to basic attacks when ki is maxed. Luckily I managed to get the Kaioken and Kaiaoken x3 in only one try yesterday, so no grinding for that (we'll see what happens when I get the x20 mission).

The first time I played Phantasy Star IV, Raja was my fifth and he was fine.  The second time, I used Hahn and he blew me away.  He could do powerful double and triple tech combos with everyone and had a healing technique.  So the third time I played the game, choosing Hahn was a no brainer.

Final Fantasy 9 comes to mind. A combination of the fact that it has the best character roster in any game I've ever played, as well as the fact that they're all so different in battle. It's easier to choose in something like FF10 where they all end up roughly the same by the end.
With FF9 it ultimately came down to developing the characters that could hit a guaranteed 9999. So Zidane with that chest ability (what's it called?), Quina with Frog Drop, Freya with Dragon Crest. And then either Steiner or Vivi, although I don't think their best moves are guaranteed. Steiner and Vivi are essential for beating Yans though as they have the only 9999-All moves.

btw what are the New 3DS exclusive features? I've tried googling it and I don't get productive results.

Just the camera control. It is a great addition though. I remembered playing Ocarina 3D and didn't think it was lacking anything in the control department. I really do use camera control quite a lot in Majoras's Mask though, it's nice to be able to look around a bit more as it's such an interesting world.
